The World Cherishes Duplicity




“The worldly people generally cherish doubleness of heart or duplicity, speaking out one thing abroad and concealing a different thing inside. And the funny part of it is that they are anxious to present this doubleness of their heart to the public as liberality or the virtue of conciliation. These double-tongued men give to the creeds of persons, who are candid and do not adopt duplicity themselves, the designations of sectarianism, bigotry, etc. but we should only associate with those who are candid, and not with the others.”

–Sri Caitanya’s teachings, Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Maharaj chapter 5, p 211
